Example of mining listing

  • Alchan Bee Silver Lead Mining Co.
    • The Alchan Bee Silver Lead Mining Co. a spokane company, capitalized for $100,000, in ten-cent shares, and of which one half is treasury stock, is developing eight patented claims, with water rights on Goat Creek, about five and a half miles east of the columbia river, which serves and means of economical transportation. The property was discovered in 1894 by Henry M. Austin, prospecting under grubstake supplied by H.M. Howard and associates, of Spokane. For 19 years Mr. Austin worked continuously and has done 400 feet of underground work. The property is 1 1/2 miles from the old deer trail mine; the germania tungsten mine lies one mile easterly, while the gold seal property, now sending out some small shipments to Trail, B.C. lies between the Alchan Bee and Deer Trail. The main working tunnel, now being driven, is at an elevation of 2700 feet above sea-level, the highest point of the property being about 3650 feet. The tunnel takes a northeasterly course from the level of Goat Creek and in 300 feet has reached vertical depth of over 100 feet. The first 144 feet was throught white crystalline limestone and then for 45 feet a hard blue lime was penetrated. A drift was run easterly on the contact for 38 feet and shows considerable mineralization, with zinc blende, galena, iron pyrites, and some specks of chalcopyrite, over a width of 3 1/2 feet. On the other side of the blue lime another vein was struck in white limestone carrying values as high as 40% lead and 44 ounces silver, being 12 feet wide. Eighty feet further on it is expected that a big quartz vein, traced for several hundred feet on the surface, where it shows a width of from 20 to 50 feet, will be intersected.
